Towards preserving heritage of language

 The need to promote tribal literature and dialects was stressed at the 3rd national  seminar  on tribal literature and languages with special reference to languages of North East India. The event got underway in Chedema on March 11 at the Tourist Resort.

Addressing the seminar as the chief guest, Minister for Higher Education Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu said that language serves as the medium of understanding as well as creative powers. Literature on the other hand provides humanity with the best foundation for advancement. Literature serves as reservoir of thought and knowledge that preserve culture and other aspects of life throughout the ages, he said.

The minister said modern writers do their best to generate new knowledge  in the realms of human life. “We also honour old values, culture and wisdom of our ancestors. It is also a specimen of a person’s originality and identity. Therefore, we have  history in every field of discipline of studies that continues to the present time and will continue to the future,” the minister said.
